Delaney: Democrats Must Fight Republican Attempts to Take Away Protections for Pre-existing Conditions

FRIENDSHIP HEIGHTS, MD– John Delaney released the following statement in response to a federal appeals court decision on Wednesday, that struck down Obamacare’s individual mandate.  

“Eighteen Republican Attorneys General are trying to destroy Obamacare and put millions of Americans at risk of losing their healthcare coverage for pre-existing conditions. These Republicans are blinded by their partisan distrust of anything tied to former President Barack Obama and they are putting the healthcare security of so many Americans at risk, including children with potentially fatal illnesses,” said Delaney. “Like we did in 2018, Democrats must make healthcare the central focus of the 2020 campaign and we should put forth specific and common sense ways to build a universal healthcare system. My BetterCare proposal does just that – universal healthcare with choice.”
